Nurse Quality

Grade: A

On top of performing well in its overall grade, this facility received a strong nursing rating. In fact, we gave it an A in that category. The nursing category assesses many subcategories, many of which are associated with nursing hours. This particular nursing home provided 3.4 hours of nursing care per resident daily. At least one quarter of this care was provided by registered nurses, which are highly skilled nurses. This is a high ratio of skilled nursing care. In calculating our nursing grades, we apply additional weight to hours provided by more highly trained nurses such as registered or licensed nurses. Lastly, we also looked at a few quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility excelled in these areas, with excellent scores for minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. These areas are generally reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care a nursing home provides.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This nursing home also was given a first-rate short-term care score. Indeed, this is this nursing home's second strongest category score. In that area, we awarded this facility a score of A. In determining our short-term care scores, we analyze the facility's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This score is frequently a reliable measure of the nursing home's ability to rehabilitate patients. Remarkably, this nursing home provides about 50% more services from physical therapists and registered nurses than most nursing homes we looked at. This is a very favorable sign. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents that returned home from this facility. On top of excelling in the area of physical therapy staffing, we found that it fared as well as just about any facility in this area with 58.1 percent of its patients returning home. Most nursing homes are below 50 percent in this statistic.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

Another quality feature of this nursing home is its inspection grade. In that area, we gave this nursing home an A. These inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this facility had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L. This tells you that the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Switching gears to our fourth area, this facility was awarded a highly favorable long-term care grade. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- in that category, giving this facility straight A's. For long-term care residents, the primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 87.93103 percent of its patients. This is a bit below what we were hoping for but still a decent percentage. This nursing home also keeps its patients out of the hospital. It had just 1.48 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days.
